How to use skullcap in a sentence?

  1. Stephanie Baker:

    During our field school excavations at Drimolen, a student began uncovering a cluster of fragments. We could see that they were parts of a skull. But they werent immediately identifiable, over the course of the field season more and more fragments were uncovered. We began piecing them together. No one could decide what this skullcap was from, until one night it all came together -- and we realised we were looking at a hominin!

  2. Felix Klein:

    I call on all citizens of Berlin and across Germany to wear the yarmulke( as the skullcap is known in Yiddish) next Saturday if there are new, intolerable attacks targeting Israel and Jews on the occasion of Al-Quds Day in Berlin, by doing this we can show a great sign of solidarity with the Jewish community and make a statement for the freedom of religion and the diversity of our society.

  3. Stephanie Baker:

    This find really challenged us. We compared the assembled skullcap to all of the other examples of hominins in the Cradle area. Eventually, its teardrop shape and relatively big brain cavity meant we were looking at Homo erectus.
